RE: EasyJet's Future? (Stelios/EK/Competition)

Personally, I feel Stelios is using the aircraft order as an "excuse" to sell his shares while the price is so high at the moment. His whole ethos when starting EZY was to "take on the big guys" and "champion the small, not so well off person / company" - I don't think EZY has lost it's way (still L...

RE: Did EZY Pay Too Much For GT?

RE: Thomas Cook & EasyJet Tie-up - End Of UK Charters?

Thomas Cook have been using seats on easyJet flights for a while now, certainly since the beginning of summer 2011 for both their flexible trips brand and mainstream packages. This deal, if announced, sounds like the seats will be at a fixed price rather than paying the "rate on the day" but for a g...

RE: Fast Jet To Use Ex Easyjet A319s

Be interesting to see if they keep the 156 seat layout or reduce to 150 and have just 3 cabin crew. Rumours at easyJet suggest airbus gave ezy a large discount when the aviation authorities stuck to their 1 crew per 50 pax rule.
